Things to do around The Wheatsheaf Inn

The Wheatsheaf occupies an enviable position right on the edge of the thriving village of Woodhouse Eaves and a stone’s throw from the charming villages of Quorn, Rothley, Swithland and Newtown Linford. Our beautiful surroundings offer an array of local attractions, walking routes and bridle paths.

Places to stay!

A wild time at Bradgate.

Bradgate Park is 830 acres of some of the most beautiful landscape in the county. Unexpectedly wild and rugged in places, but also easily accessible in the lower part by a tarmac path running along side the picturesque River Lin. An ever popular place for walking, photography, watching deer or even to paddle in the shallows on a hot day. We’re just two miles from the park’s top entrance and make the perfect spot for refreshment or a meal afterwards.

Like to ramble?

There is an almost limitless network of paths, cycle routes and places to explore in the beautiful countryside and villages around us. Many with the opportunity to stop at The Wheatsheaf at the beginning, middle or end of course! Try Swithland Woods, a great place to spot local flowers, trees and birds; or maybe a cycle by Cropston Reservoir with its Victorian water works and visiting waterfowl.

Improve your par.

We’re lucky enough to be nestled between two great golf courses here at The Wheatsheaf. Charnwood Forest, which is Leicestershire’s oldest golf club, and the picturesque Lingdale Golf Club with its notoriously tough first three holes. Whichever way your game goes why not come and mull it over with us afterwards.

Get steaming!

The Great Central Railway is one of the few railways in the world where scheduled full size steam trains pass in motion on a double track. Its atmospheric stations at the nearby villages of Quorn and Rothley recreate the magic and nostalgia of the great British age of steam. Why not take a ride before an traditional Sunday lunch with us?
